The Enugu State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has dismissed as unfounded and gross irresponsibility the purported suspension of one of its notable leaders in the state, Chief Anike Nwoga, for alleged anti-party activity by the zonal leadership of the party in Enugu East senatorial zone.

In a statement issued by the party’s Publicity Secretary, Mrs. Kate Ofor, APC described the action of the zonal party executives which Nwoga presently leads as the zonal vice chairman as a total violation of the party’s constitution.

It accused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as the major culprit behind the action.

Quoting the constitutional provision of Article 2 Subsection I, and Section VI Section C, the statement said: “These provisions were not adhered to and as such, we take objection to the action of those who head to the media with the slightest disagreement or provocation, their failure to abide by the tenets of the constitution of our great party which is quoted above is objectionable.

“Recently the footprints of PDP are being spotted in the way and manner some of our members are tainting the image of the Party in the Public Domain, accordingly those agents of the PDP should be courageous enough to leave us in peace.

“We are at a loss where Chief Anike Nwoga one of the few founding members of our great party who from the scratch has remained in the opposition can today be smeared with unfounded anti-party activity tag.

“The APC Chieftain in question, Chief Anike Nwoga has already contacted the State Chairman, Dr. Ben Nwoye who is believed will summon a meeting of the State working committee to redress the obnoxious act.”
